Carnival brings the reward party down under

Hannah Edensor

Having fun just started paying off, with Carnival Cruise Line finally bringing its rewards program down under.

Aussie cruisers can now nab VIP rewards, simply by cruising and having a good time.

Carnival’s program is known as VIFP, which stands for Very Important Fun Person, and features special member-only offers and benefits, which Aussies can now earn points for every time they set sail.

Carnival Cruise Line’s vice president for Australia Jennifer Vandekreeke said the cruise line was thrilled to be able to reward its Australian guests who loved cruising with Carnival.

“More than 320,000 guests have sailed on Carnival Spirit and Carnival Legend in the past two and a half years, including thousands of repeat cruisers. We even have some Australian guests who have sailed Carnival 16 times,” Vandekreeke said.

“As our Australian guest numbers continue to grow, the time has come to introduce our reward program down under. Our VIFP program, which is like being a VIP only way more fun, gives us the chance to recognise our most loyal guests, as well as those who are new to Carnival, with anyone able to join and take advantage of members-only offers.”

Benefits such as members-only specials start as soon as guests join, with cruisers able to enjoy additional benefits as they accrue more points, including collectible Carnival items, invitations to exclusive cocktail receptions, priority boarding, cabin upgrades and free laundry.
